A drag-and-drop interface allows users to easily download or upload Bug programs. An online development environment, which works much like iTunes, can be accessed through a user’s computer. When the Bug is connected to a computer by a USB cable, the development environment detects it and its connected modules and displays popular programs using the given configuration. A user can download the programs by dragging their icons onto the Bug icon. If the user changes the Bug’s physical configuration, the change is mirrored on-screen in the development environment.
In the spirit of the open-source movement, Bug Labs makes available all the schematics of its hardware. Users can collaborate through the development environment, sharing programs for the device and ideas for different configurations.
